Set of Profiles: Positive Personal & Cultural Identity Competency

These profile descriptions include three facets that underpin Positive and Cultural Identity Competency:

  1.     Relationships and cultural contexts
  2.     Personal values and choices
  3.     Personal strengths and abilities

These three facets are interrelated and are embedded within the profile descriptions, which are written from a student’s point-of-view.
